Hey @everyone, we’re now only 12 days away from public launch of the XR Guild. We now have working versions of:
Registration: https://register.xrguild.org and xrguildbot on discord with back-end database
Financial and legal facilities, including tax-exempt status.
All feedback is welcome. We’ve done everything we can to support this launch logistically. Here’s what we need from all of you:
REGISTER as a member through either the Discord bot (/apply) or the website first. Let me know if any issues ASAP and I will fix.
Even if you did so before, do #1 to double-check that the info-UPDATE process works. I added some new fields too, like website and twitter address
If you can DONATE, please do so now. We’re not asking any membership fees for now. So we’re testing if “pay what you can” will sustain us.
Help us get some positive PRESS coverage. This is a long-term project, so we don’t need 100 articles on day 1. But quality articles are what counts.
Spread the word on SOCIAL MEDIA about the website, the events, and (less evangelically) donations. Note: we’re not seeking corporate donations.
On June 1 from 5:05 -6pm for any AWE conference attendees to visit our panel and ask questions. If there’s enough time, we’ll pick an ethical topic to explore together.
On June 3 from 8-10am we’ll have our morning workshop, called a Cofffeeklatch (because full buffet breakfast was too expensive — we’ll have a few baked goods but BYO food). We’ll break into tables of 3-6 people each to discuss one of five or so interesting topics and take notes. We have some great table facilitators signed up: Jessica Outlaw, Brittan Heller, Jasmine Roberts, plus me, Evo, Damon as needed.
Our next big project after launch will be a video explaining the Guild. If anyone wants to be memorialized on the website, you can record yourself at home answering questions. I’ll send you a set of questions to answer. Evo or I may try to corner some of you at AWE as well.
Thanks, and see you all soon.
